NOT a day goes by that I don’t see some pinhead saying that someone else ‘isn’t a real Eagles fan” or “must not be/can’t be, a real Eagles fan”. They talk as if they were granted some special power by the Eagles to set the standard for what a real Eagles fan is or isn’t.
As the man who created this website to celebrate Eagles fans, that ruffles my feathers to no end. I’d rather listen to a Cowboys fan drone on and on about their last Super Bowl, than to ride with an Eagles fan who turned on his fellows.
Because at least the Cowboys fan isn’t a traitor to their fellow fans.
Trust me, if these traitors showed up at the Linc they’d need a ticket to get in, just like that guy in a Redskins jersey. If they showed up with an open bottle of liquor, they’d be told to discard it prior to entry just like any guy in a Giants jersey. In fact, if they don’t buy a ticket and a woman in a Tony Romo jersey does, guess which one gets in and which one doesn’t.
So all their superfan bullshit nets them what? Nothing. It’s just an e-thug trying to make you feel bad about not being an asshole like them.
Usually the jerk takes a cheapshot by posting some inane crap in a language we’ll call “Functional Illiterate”, where every other word is either badly misspelled or substituted for, using “Netspeak” which is basically just cyber-Ebonics.
These morons are usually the same people with a TON of bathroom selfies, proudly displayed as profile pictures. Imitation grown men practicing how to “look hard” in the bathroom mirrors of the Old Country Buffet that they work in. (Look: One or two bathroom selfies isn’t a big deal; but when you’re taking off your shirt at work to take pictures of your chest tattoos, someone needs to throw you an intervention.)
Long story short, here’s what it takes for you to be a REAL fan. You have to think you are. Only YOU set the standard for you. No one else has that right unless you give it to them; and by and large the people who want to take it, are the LAST people you want to give your power to.
Don’t let an asshole tell you how to love what you love. Most times assholes don’t know a thing about real love anyway. Do your real fan however YOU see fit.
This is The BEAST, with love for ALL my fellow fans, no doubt!
